Avishka, JB Petit, celebrates ‘eco-friendly Ganesha’ by installing her handmade ‘shadukimitti’ or river silt Ganpati  idol at home for the festivities which she learned to make at SIF class. The idol is then immersed in a bucket of water and once the silt is dissolved, the water is used for watering plants.

Ketan Bhanduskar from Chunabhatti Municipal School proudly spread the knowledge to friends on how to reduce water pollution by using small eco-friendly idols for the Ganesha festival.
